Clare Murray Hickey works with a wide and varied range of issues including:

Anxiety, depression, bereavement, grief, P.T.S.D., suicidal ideation, childhood neglect, adoption, relationship issues, loneliness, loss of meaning/purpose.

Clare endeavours to:

Provide a safe place to explore whatever difficulties may be present for you.

To offer a setting where one can be really listened to, where issues whatever they may be, big or small, can be explored at one’s own pace.

Counselling Psychology can provide a deeper understanding and a working through of thoughts, emotions and behaviour, bringing into awareness aspects that may be outside of conscious awareness but may be impacting on emotional, physical and mental health.

Clare Murray Hickey’s approach to counselling is based on the belief that each one of us is on a unique journey through life, although at times a painful one.

Clare feels privileged to share this journey with those who seek insight, support and space to explore what is going on for them, on their journey towards increased mental health and development. This is facilitated in counselling sessions through process focused and also goal orientated approaches depending on what best fits.
